I'd like to bring a belly pan to the competition, but I just know if I put it on, the border people are going to make me take it off to look for drugs and bombs and such.

So, the Flea won't be showing up with any new eco features other than a temporary cowl block I'll probably tape on for the competition (unless it's ridiculously stinking hot).

On second thought, if the weather here cooperates, I may do ABA coastdown testing on a cardboard air dam this week and bring that if it works.
